3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (bottled 10/2006)
Dark amber color, creamy beige head, lace. Fruity aroma (banana). Quite fruity ale - a bit banana and caramel in the flavor, some yeasty notes. Decently hoppy aftertaste. English bitter influences (Challenger and East Kent Goldings used here) are mixed with typical Belgium/Dutch sweetness (sugar added).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange brown color. Vanilla and citrus in the aroma. Hopbitter flavor (30 EBU: Challenger and East Kent Goldings, the label says) with vanilla and citrus. A touch of yeast. Soft and smooth flavor, but with a firm bitterness and some blackcurrant in the aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewed for the Zythos branch "De Limburgse Biervrienden" Amber-red, hazy beer; good amberish head, leaving fine lace. Nose formed with ambrée malts, cookies - and hops! Some caramel. Roasted, slight bitterish flavour, but much less hoppy than the nose. I detect a lot of restsweetness, and the bitterness in the taste also has a more burnt malt character. Very highly carbonated, medium bodied. Dry. Bit harsh, herbal bitterness (not hoppy) in the aftertaste. Mmmyeahh... I’m used to better from this brewery. The search for bitterness is there, but not the hops I would like to taste.

Yeasty and fruity aroma. Hazy, brown-orange coloured with a lasting, thick, creamy, off-white head. Taste is sweet, malty, fruity and more hopbitter towards the end. Dry brew. Quite decent. I agree with Ol_Juntan on the IPA style approach.
